What is Coliving?

Over recent years, co-living has become an increasingly popular choice for people – and especially young people –  in major cities worldwide. But what exactly is it?

Let’s start with the basics. In the broadest sense, co-living is a modern form of community living in which tenants rent a private master or common room in a fully furnished apartment. Within the apartment, tenants share common spaces like kitchens, balconies, and living rooms that encourage community and belonging. Tenants also enjoy a set package of amenities, which generally includes services like routine cleaning, wifi, house maintenance, etc.

Essentially, co-living allows tenants to enjoy the best parts of communal living while eliminating the worst parts. Say hello to movie nights and dinner parties, and say goodbye to fighting over who’s turn it is to clean the bathroom.

Co-living with Hei Homes

At Hei Homes, our mission is to revolutionize urban living in Singapore by creating coliving spaces that actually work for you. As long-term expats in Singapore ourselves, we know that home isn’t just the place you sleep at night; home is the place you go to relax, play, dream, perfect your matcha latte recipe, host poker night for your crew, and practice Tiktok dances in the mirror (no shame in your game). However, we also know that creating your dream home and finding cool folks to share it with is a lot of work. So unless spending your Friday nights chillin’ in the check-out line at Ikea or haggling with the wifi provider on the phone over your lunch break is your thing, we think you should let us help you out.  

Whether you’re an expat, a student completing an overseas internship, a local looking for a change of pace, or a digital nomad passing through to find out what the chicken rice hype is all about, co-living with Hei Homes offers affordable, flexible, housing solutions that are intentionally designed to provide you with a sense of community and comfort. We create beautiful, functional homes, and you create the life you have always wanted to live. 

Sound too good to be true? Grab a kopi peng, pull up a chair, and let us break down the benefits of co-living with Hei Homes. We’re here to show you that you don’t have to be a crazy rich Asian to live well in the Lion City.
